Inverted saloon….or in other words galley forward from the saloon, near the bow cabin rather the companionway. Dufour GL430, 460, 520, Elan GT5, Elan Impression 50 are just some examples of this “philosophy”. The manufactures claim that the saloon is at the widest point of the boat so we get more comfort.
Hmm…., not sure if this will work in colder climates like the English channel or around Britain but here in the Mediterranean where the cockpit is THE most commonly used place, either sailing or at anchor, I wouldn’t like to walk through the saloon to get into the galley for my little snack, my beer or to get some ice for my gin and tonic. What’s your opinion about this inverted saloon thing?
